Summary: it is the real original game and not a fake version. i was worried it would be fake as once i bought a copy of pokemon soul silver and it was fake, couldn't go online so i couldn't complete my heart gold game and ALWAYS froze. but that's enough about fake games. it is probably my favorite pokemon game at the moment. it has great music and good quality viewing.
Summary: I was not only surprised how fast I received this, it also worked better then I remember for a at least 7 year old game. The game runs smoothly and I have had no problems whatsoever. Spent over 50+ hours on it and still haven't run into any faults or glitches. Well Done.
Summary: Emerald is one of the best pokemon games out there.If you didnt played it I definetly recommend it. Some people trying to play pokemon starting from Black/white( I think it is a huge mistake they were the worst pokemon and rpg games I ever played eventhough they fixed that on black/white 2) just don't do that try to play less annoying game like Heartgold or Emerald even Platinum then you will love pokemon series I promise.
